Tito’s Vodka

Page Headers

TitosVodkaTito’s handcrafted vodka is micro distilled in small batches. Unlike most vodka, Tito’s is made from corn rather than wheat, resulting in vodka that is not only gluten-free, but genuinely unique. Running corn through the fermentation process has a subtle pleasant effect resulting in a clean, mildly sweet taste. Tito’s is definitely a sipping vodka, best savored ice cold and neat.
